I have a Radeon Xpress 200 Series chipset (http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_14603_14616^14663,00.html) which states that it "allows dual-display management on 2 monitors".

There is only 1 monitor plug in the back of the computer. Is there a spliter cable or something that I need to be able to hook up 2 monitors?

I'm confused. If someone could point me in the right direction.

Thank you.

For other users, spliter cable will only duplicate the screen output on both monitors, to have extended desktop and dual screen etc you need a graphics card with dual output.
